Appendix D: Credits

Version 0

Can’t throw enough respect to Metamorphosis Alpha. EXP is a homebrew based on this RPG. Eventually I would like to populate this with which seeds lead to EXP.

Version 1

Homebrew 1980 by Hugh MacLeod

Notes

Typed on an olivetti underwood electric typewriter. Photocopied sections contained in D-Ring binders.

Special Thanks

The minds that changed the meaning of what a game meant, and how collective play could work. James Ward (Gamma World, and Metamorphosis Alpha); Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson (Dungeons and Dragons).

While Space Opera came along much later it demonstrated that an organized game with epic, comedic space shenanigans was possible.
